Kierkegaard and the Crisis in Religion




Part 1 of 3 Lectures:

Kierkegaard and the Crisis in Religion
Nietzsche and the Crisis in Philosophy
Sartre and the Crisis in Morality

Dr. Walter Kaufmann begins this series by explaining that existentialists share as many differences as other schools of philosophy. First coined to refer to the theories of Jaspers and Heidegger, existentialism became well-known only after the work of Kierkegaard, Sartre, and Nietzsche all radical individualists who found previous philosophical systems lacking. He explains their writings as an answer to the modern crisis in religious philosophy and morality. 1960

Subject: One of the best available lectures on existentiallism
In brief, Professor Kaufmann examines the existential tradition with clarity and deep insight. Certainly a great starting point for anyone with a curiosity and I would argue that there is enough insight to give anyone much to think about, regardless of how much exposure they have had to contemporary philosophy.
